Mr Ben Yates
Consultant Podiatric Surgeon
I approached Mr Yates at the BMI Ridgeway Hospital in April 2018 following consultation with my doctor who recommended this route.  Initially I had been suffering extreme pain in my right foot and large toe and, despite analgesics, cortisone injection and various footwear modifications, I remained in chronic pain.  This considerably restricted my ability to walk moderate distances.

The result, from the discussion with Mr Yates, was to proceed with surgery which involved a First MTP Cheilectomy and also a Cartiva Resurfacing Implant with Phalangeal Osteotomy.  This was performed successfully within six weeks of my initial appointment and I am now pain free and able to return to comfortable walking.

The problem and process was clearly explained to me by Mr Yates and, who along with the medical staff, I found to be highly professional in this field.  I would strongly recommend Mr Yates and his team to persons with a similar foot problem.
